Call for Submissions: TTCP Cyber Autonomy Gym for Experimentation (CAGE) Challenge 3

To facilitate R&D into autonomous Artificial Intelligence (AI), the TTCP Cage Working Group has released the Cyber Operations Research Gym (CybORG), an experimental platform using the OpenAI Gym interface that features a cybersecurity scenario and a challenge. Researchers and cyber security experts are now invited to submit their response to the challenge.

Submissions close on 31 January 2023 and the final results will be announced on 14 February 2023. For further information go to DSTG’s Web Site.

Recent advances in artificial intelligence (AI) technologies show promise for autonomous cyber operations (ACO), offering the potential for distributed, adaptive defensive measures at machine speed and scale. Cyber is a particularly challenging domain for autonomous AI. The TTCP has nominated a challenge in this space that requires further research in order to enable ACO to become an operational capability.

To facilitate this AI research, the TTCP CAGE working group is releasing its CybORG), together with a cybersecurity scenario and a challenge to which researchers are invited to respond.

The aim is to support the development of AI tactics, techniques and procedures with CybORG and a series of CAGE scenarios with associated challenge problems in order to support practical demonstrations of ACO. The working group wishes to engage the AI and cyber security research communities, especially to leverage domain experts outside of the cyber field.

CAGE challenge 1 was released in August 2021 at the IJCAI-21 1st International Workshop on Adaptive Cyber Defense (ACD 2021) and concluded in in February 2022 with 4 novel submissions received. CAGE challenge 2 was released in April 2022 and concluded in July 2022 with 20 novel submissions received. CAGE Challenge 3 is now live! The CAGE scenario and associated challenge problem, together with CybORG (our AI gym research environment), are available here .

Submissions close on 31 January 2023 and the final results will be announced on 14 February 2023.
